Think about all that is happening around you. Perhaps your company is going through a reorganization. Or perhaps your health or finances aren't where you want them to be. Perhaps it's all of the above or something else entirely.
President Obama had poured his heart and political capital into background checks and gun reform, yet his efforts were met with failure, in a coup against the will of the People orchestrated by the NRA and their lackeys in the Senate.
Reagan and Clarke share their reactions in personally terrorizing situations -- Ron after his father was shot, Torie at the Pentagon on 9/11 -- and how public officials should respond to violence. Good: "stay calm and carry on" like Deval. Bad: overreact w/ Iraq & torture. Ugly: vote for gun deaths.
Women are leading the way in so many areas, both on a world-wide stage and as community leaders. Here is a short list of list of women who are accomplishing great things.
There is a tradition in the black church named "call and response." It's simply the experience of the preacher "calling" and the congregation "responding." Obama is ready to issue "calls" to the American people, over the heads of the Washington politicians and pundits. It's time for our response.
Nugent will attend at the invitation of Republican Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas. But the message he sends is toxic for the Republican Party.

They emerged this week as the most vivid representatives of Obama's new liberal America, as emblematic of the times and what ails us as Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson were America's "terror era" canaries in the coal mine.
We must not despair at the challenge of creating the change that children need. For the sake of our children, for the sake of those like Rep. Gabby Giffords who have suffered gun violence, it is time for people of all faiths to be bold and courageous.
With so much support, it would seem that this legislation should sail swiftly through both houses of Congress, and be signed into law by the president. But two powerful forces of human nature stand in the way -- greed and fear.
It is time for opponents of gun control to stop mindlessly shouting "The Second Amendment!!" as if that ends the discussion. It does not. Just as there is no First Amendment right to falsely yell fire in a crowded theatre, there is no Second Amendment right to carry an AK-47 there.
Let's look at the legal basis for Americas gun culture; the constitution. And let's stop pussy-footing around the fact that enacting a series of smart sensible regulations and licensing requirements on gun ownership is not otherwise possible.
Few professional endeavors are more fraught with anxiety and danger than the work that makes us responsible for other people's children. Sandy Hook Elementary School is the latest scene of every educator's nightmare.
